Rubus Pinot Noir Italy
Rubus Project
Italy - Veneto

The Rubus Project was created by Fran Kysela as a way to source & sell incredible wines at value prices. All wines in this international project are hand-selected by Fran Kysela. Rubus wines are fruit driven, true-to-type values that over deliver - a true representation of quality for the consumer at an excellent price.

Grapes are sourced from the Lessini hills in the Colli Berici, where the cold nights allow the aromatic compounds in the grapes to develop. The vines, 20 years old on average, are planted on calcareous soils of volcanic origin.

Nice garnet and red color. Expressive and charming on the nose with cherry and blackberry aromas. On the palate, the wine has a nice spicy note. The length to the finish is round and long.

Wine Type

Agricultural Practices
Soil type
Volcanic calcareous
The grapes were harvested, destemmed, crushed and then cool soaked for 24 hours. Maceration on the skins took place before fermentation at temperatures of up to 22 degrees C. Following malolactic fermentation, 30% of the wine was aged in French oak for 4-5 months prior to bottling.

Nice with roasted or grilled beef or game, and a very good companion to matured cheese.

2017 Rubus Pinot Noir Veneto - 88 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The medium ruby-colored 2017 Pinot Noir Veneto comes from hillside parcels in south Vicenza and is hand-harvested and aged in a mix of tank and oak. Attractive red fruits (raspberries, cherries) and floral notes all emerge from this forward, nicely textured, delicious 2017 that’s not going to make old bones, but will certainly offer lots of pleasure over the coming 2-3 years."
